A small basket with lid in yellow and white pattern for your small storage needs. This basket has been woven by women artisans of wolof community in Senegal. Basket weaving has been practiced in Senegal for generations. Traditionally baskets are woven by binding cattail stalks, a thick local grass, with thin strips of palm frond. Palm fronds are difficult to work with and are rough on the hands of the weavers, so strips of plastic have replaced palm fronds to reduce discomfort during the weaving process. Plastic used for basket weaving is recycled from prayer mats.
Basket measures 8.5" in diameter and 8.5" in height. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.
This product is made in Senegal, Africa.
